We Tell Ourselves Stories in Order to Live

Jan 24, 2013 – Apr 27, 2013



Curated by Cassandra Coblentz, this exhibition recognizes the recipients of the Hallie Ford Fellowship in the Visual Arts of the past three years: 2010 Fellows Daniel Duford, David Eckard, and Heidi Schwegler; 2011 Fellows Sang-ah Choi, Bruce Conkle, and Stephen Hayes; and the 2012 Fellows Ellen Lesperance, Akihiko Miyoshi, and Michelle Ross. Focused on mid-career visual artists who demonstrate a depth of practice and potential for significant future accomplishment, We Tell Ourselves Stories in Order to Live provides a glimpse into the work of nine distinguished Oregon-based artists whose have and continue to make remarkable contributions to the region’s cultural landscape. The fellowships honor the late Hallie Ford, co-founder of the Ford Family Foundation, Roseburg, Oregon, who was a life-long supporter of the visual arts and believed that all people should have the opportunity to explore and realize their talents. Each Hallie Ford Fellow is awarded $25,000 in unrestricted funds to pursue their creative passion and, thereby, enrich and enliven the cultural life of Oregon.
